I participated in this sponsored campaign on behalf of One2One Network. All opinions stated are my own.
Kaelyn was so excited when her Evenflo Platinum SecureKid DLX Harnessed Booster arrived! I had told her a few weeks before that she will be getting a new car seat that she was able to use as a big girl booster seat as well. She was super excited to finally be getting a “big girl”seat.
As a parent I’m always looking for the newest item out there that will keep my daughters safe and when I saw all the amazing features the new Evenflo Platinum SecureKid DLX had I just had to give it a try. We are huge fans of the Evenflo brand. Both of our girls car seats have been Evenflo, so I knew that we would definitely be happy with it.
I took the car seat immediately out of the box because Kaelyn couldn’t wait to try it out and I have to be honest, I couldn’t either! Unfortunately, my husband wasn’t home and all I could think of was, how am I going to get this in my van? Well, surprisingly I got it in my van and I strapped it in all my myself in just a few minutes! I have never, ever strapped in any of our car seats in the past 4 years. My husband has always been in charge of the car seat set up. So, you can imagine his surprise when he saw that I had done it all by myself.
Each side of the Evenflo Platinum SecureKid DLX Harnessed Booster contains a safety latch that grips directly into the car seat latches on our chairs. There are also two behind that secure from behind the seat. I couldn’t believe how easy it was just to click and pull. The car seat fit perfectly and straight. Now, these are some of the awesome safety features we already have on our previous Evenflo car seats, but I had to point out how easy they are to install, but secure at the same time. Now to some new awesome features!
I absolutely love our booster, but my ultimate favorite features has to be the buckle pockets that protect the buckles from getting hot and the Outlast technology which is a temperature regulating fabric developed by NASA.
Living in Florida during the summer months our cars getting very hot and many times I would have to wait until the buckles cooled off to strap my girls in or even worse, I actually burned them because of the metal being too hot. The buckle pockets are definitely going to be a life saver when those really hot months come our way. I also like how the pockets provide somewhere to store the buckles so that I am not digging around her when she is sitting, just so that I can find the buckles to actually strap her in.
The Outlast technology is going to be great from keeping Kaelyn getting too hot in her booster. Too many times I have taken my girls out of the car during summer and their backs were completely sweaty and hot. We have already had some really hot weather here in Florida and not once has Kaelyn complained about how hot she is. The fabric helps to ensure a safer, more peaceful ride for both mom and child and help prevent an accident from ever happening.
If you were to ask Kaelyn what her favorite things about the Evenflo Platinum SecureKid DLX Harnessed Booster was, she would probably tell you how much room she has and the two cup holders that are attached to the booster. I can definitely see the difference in space she has around her and she definitely loves having her drink and snack at hands reach.
I am also able to change her easily from the 5 point harness to using the vehicle seat belt, which is what Kaelyn is all excited about. We prefer to keep her in the 5 point harness for now, but soon we will allow her to use the “big girl” belt.
